PRIVACY POLICY



Privacy is our first concern

We are completely committed to keep all of your personal information confidential. Given the sensitive nature of our services, privacy is not an afterthought; we build everything around safeguarding your personal information. Please take a moment to read our Customer Privacy Policy and learn of how your personal information is handled.

Why do we collect any personal information?

We only collect personal information that you provide us with. The better we know about you, the better we are able to provide you with superior customer service and provide you with relevant and convenient web content. More importantly, we are able to keep you up-to-date on our services you may already have purchased or special offers that may help you save money or would like to know about.
As we work with select partners to expand our own product and service offerings, we may choose to inform you about that as well. We always look for ways to improve ourselves and our services; so from time to time we may also use your personal information to contact you about providing us with your feedback or participating in a market research survey.

How do we collect personal information?

We collect information about you in several ways. Since most of our services are completely personal, we may receive the information from you during the purchase process or through the use of our services. We will, however, NEVER record or store any personal conversations as part of offering our services. We may also ask for your contact information when you correspond with us, call us or participate in an online survey or update your information via the website. In addition, if you ask to be included in an email mailing list, we collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.

When and how do we disclose personal information?

We will always protect your personal information in accordance with this Customer Privacy Policy. We will never sell or share your personal information with 3rd parties.

We will disclose your personal information only under these provisions:

  • United States law requires that any suspicion of risk of child abuse be reported to child welfare authorities or law enforcement authorities. If we, or the consultants, believe that a child is at risk of being abused, has already been abused, or that someone who previously abused children is still a threat, we have no choice but to immediately make every effort possible to report it to social services agencies and/or the police.
  • Most United States courts have the power to subpoena our records and a consultant's records if you are involved in a court case in which your relationship with jewishheritagefoundation.org or the personal advisor is somehow relevant. Although this may be rare, if you have any questions, it is better to contact your lawyer prior to disclosing any information you may deem private.
  • If someone's life is in danger, we will attempt to report it. This applies to potential cases of suicide or homicide.
How we protect your personal information?

This is of critical importance to us! We manage your security through electronic means and through physical and managerial procedures.
The jewishheritagefoundation.org website uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To make purchases from us, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Netscape Navigator 3.0 or later, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Safari on the Macintosh. This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.

For your comfort and piece of mind, jewishheritagefoundation.org also works with companies like ScanalertTM that certify the security of our websites daily via its Hacker Safe® certification program.

You should also consider ways to safeguard your personal data when using the Internet. Change your passwords often and include combinations of letters and numbers and make sure that you are using a secure browser.

To help us optimize your browsing experience, we will use information your browser provides automatically, such as the type of computer and operating system you are using.
Like many websites, the jewishheritagefoundation.org website uses cookie technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number.

These cookies also help us understand which areas of our website are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use this information to study visitor traffic patterns so we can make our website even better.

When we send you emails, we may also include "click-through URL's". By clicking these URLs, you will pass through our web server before arriving at the final website destination. This process helps us learn about your interest in particular topics and help us review the effectiveness our communications with you.

How committed are we to your privacy?

Our privacy guidelines are communicated to every employee of jewishheritagefoundation.org to make sure your personal information remains confidential. We also do not knowingly solicit personal information from children or send them requests for personal information.

The jewishheritagefoundation.org website may contain links to other websites. We do not share your personal information with those websites and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We do encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

In case we are going to use your personal information differently from what was stated at the time of data collection, we will try to contact you via email using the most recent information we have. If you have not given us permission to communicate with you, you will not be contacted, nor will we use your personal information in a new manner.

The jewishheritagefoundation.org Customer Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. We encourage you to review the privacy policy regularly for any changes.

Thank you!
